The movie throws light on the real life story of Ray Kroc, who transformed McDonald’s from a San Bernardino hamburger stand into a global empire now with over 35,000 locations around the world.

Talking about the film, Keaton said, “Before this, I knew there was a Ray Kroc but if someone asked, I’d probably have offered the generic response that he started McDonald’s. I didn’t know there were McDonald’s brothers and 90% of the population doesn’t know that.” Well, if you talk about it, neither do we know how McDonald’s such a huge success and where it started from.
